We woke up to blueberry pancakes and coffee prepared by the caretaker this morning. We took our time leaving the cabin but took part in the MA overpass tradition as suggested by the caretaker. We climbed Becket Mountain and Walling Mountain and ate lunch at October Mountain Shelter. We took a long break at the Cookie Lady’s home hoping she would return so we could buy some snacks, no luck. We did see a black bear though, less than half a mile from our shelter. We stayed at Kay Wood Shelter passing the 1,560 mile mark. Snarf informed us that this was the distance Frodo traveled from the Shire to Mordor. Take that Frodo! We hiked 17.6 miles today.
